4 mile run today. Foot was unhappy but went along with it anyway. At one point I was running down the messinine (sp??) that provides access from the bike trail to Government Bridge and tripped. It's got a gradual stairstep kind of incline to it. It'll incline a bit, then level off, then incline a bit, then level off again - not sure the purpose. Anyhow, while going down, my body wanted to keep following the incline down, but of course, the incline flattened out and I caught my foot on this flat part. Sent a jolt of pain through my foot and helped me to realize that maybe I did injure the foot when I felt that first time. I need to see when it was that I tripped that one time and see if it coincides with when I started complaining about my foot. Might need that xray after all. Maybe I chipped a footbone or something. We'll see how it feels over the next few days.
And I did my good deed for the day. About 2 minutes away from my turn around point, I noticed a gentleman struggling to get out of his wheelchair and into his truck. I kept running assuming he would get it figured out, but after I turned around and came back, I saw he was still struggling so I asked if he needed help. I ended up helping him get into his truck. He was a double amputee. I didn't notice that when I went by him the first time or I would have stopped then. He was very grateful and thanked me kindly. *warm fuzzies*
